0 to M.E.A.N in 30 minutes

The M.E.A.N stack is a fast rising technology stack where the front-end application is completely separated from the backend through RESTful API's. While this is great for web applications that can be deployed everywhere, it does require that applications must be made different. This change in development methods is causing developers headaches on how to get up and running quickly. Until now.

0 - 15 minutes: We will talk through the trends in web development which have supported the rise of the M.E.A.N stack. We will talk through the benefits of Serverless application development and the API powered stacks behind them.

Last 30 minutes: We will build a full featured M.E.A.N web application leveraging a number of new Open Source technologies that enable rapid development of M.E.A.N web application.
